I made it!

Whew!  A whole month of blog posting every. single. day.   That was fun.  And kind of a lot of work.  Luckily, there is usually something going on around here so I didn't really have a lack of things to blog about.  Today, however, was a long day so all you get are some more emerging-spring pictures:

New garden gate. (we didn't have one last year)

New shed doors.  The old ones warped.  These are better.

Bleeding Heart blooms

Rhododendron starting to bloom.

Maple tree getting fuller.  And our view starting to fill in and leave us.

That pretty green spring haze on the birch trees.
 I'm taking a blogging day off tomorrow, but I'll be back later in the week to show you some knitting.

But lastly, a couple of quotes from Mark Twain that seem appropriate for this year in particular:

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours. ~Mark Twain

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

  1. A wonderful, entertaining month of blogging. Thanks, Liz!
    I look forward to more posts about knitting, the garden, food, trips, racing, doodlebugs, decorating and more turtle.
    Love Mark Twain - great quotes - a great mind and great writer who persevered despite great personal pain and loss. If he lived today he would surely be blogging!
